Omaha and Seward drivers should know that changing your Hyundai Elantra oil is extremely important to the condition of your vehicle. If you choose to skip or prolong an oil change interval, your engine could suffer immense damage at a high cost. Most vehicles can have an oil change between 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Refer to your owner’s manual for the exact timeline! But, what kind of oil does a Hyundai Elantra take? Read on with our service center at Sid Dillon Hyundai in Lincoln to find out the recommended Hyundai Elantra oil.


Hyundai Elantra Oil Suggestions

Crete drivers have two different Hyundai Elantra oil types to choose from. So what kind of oil does the Hyundai Elantra take? Well, it is conventional and synthetic. Conventional oil comes from unrefined crude oil and must be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. It’s much cheaper than synthetic oil.

Synthetic oil is more expensive and is preferred for your Hyundai Elantra oil type. Synthetic oil is more experience because it’s been refined, but it has additives to help your oil last longer and work better for high-performance engines. You’ll need to get an oil change every 10,000 miles for synthetic oil.

Here are the two main Hyundai Elantra oil types and grades for conventional and synthetic oil:

  • 5W-20
  • 5W-30

The 5W-20 or 5W-30 oil is the density your Hyundai Elantra needs in the winter and the summer for the oil. This will help your engine parts function smoothly. If you choose 0W-15 or a 10W-40 oil, this would cause the oil to be too thin and not protect the internal engine components properly.
